In a Rideshare Wreck? Here’s What to Do Next
Ridesharing is a great resourse for keeping drunk drivers off the road. A 2020 study on the correlation between the availability of ridesharing services and decreased incidence of alcohol-related motor vehicle collisions and fatalities found that ridesharing services can cut fatal alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents among 18- to 29-year-olds by almost half.
The last thing most Floridians think about when hopping into a rideshare vehicle is being in a car accident. Most of the time, their thoughts are on a trip to or from the airport or out for a night on the town – but rideshare wrecks can happen.
Overall, taking a rideshare is a safe form of travel – and DEFINITELY safer than driving after drinking – but you should always know what to do if you DO get in a wreck.
Here’s what passengers and drivers involved in a rideshare-related car accident can (and should) do.
